How to Style a Pixie Cut - Battle of the Styling Creams

As you can see from the above photo I don't need much "styling," I just need something that will create (and hold) a nice piece-y look for my bangs. I simply towel dry a bit and then let my hair air dry, which only takes a couple minutes.

I spray on some Color Vibrancy Dual Protect Spray by L'Oreal ($8.99, I think I got mine at CVS and it was around $5), which basically shields color from fade-out. After that I spray in some John Masters Organics Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment and Volumizer for Thinning Hair ($23) because after bleaching my hair I have scalp issues.  The 17 organic herbs and oils help improve scalp health.

My ultimate favorite hair "stuff" was Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Finishing Paste ($4.99), it did everything I wanted it to, wasn't goopy or stiff, had strong hold and it's 99% naturally-derived. I used up a whole container and went to buy a new one and couldn't find it!

I saw the Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Pixie Play Craft Cream ($4.99), hoping it would do the same thing. WRONG. It claims to give high definition and control without clumping. There was hardly any definition or control. FAIL.

The next day I bought the Not Your Mother's Short Order Fiber Glaze Cream ($5.99), which smells like fresh oranges. I put it in my hair while it was damp and once my hair was dry it looked the same as it would without anything in it at all. I tried to use it on dry hair but still results were less than good.

I finally found my treasured Pure Clean Finishing Paste and will never use anything else.
